As couples get closer to the big day, it can be a bit overwhelming and stressful. Meetings, fittings, tastings, spreadsheets, coordinating with family and friends can make it hard to relax. This is why I love meeting with my couples about one month before the wedding date for a casual dinner meeting. Going over the final timeline is way more fun with delicious food and funky decorations.
For this meeting, I took Katrina and Gabe to one of my favorite neighborhood restaurants, Grocery Cafe. It's Burmese food hidden in quiet residential neighborhood. The owner's old records line decorate the pastel toned walls. We sat in folding chairs and old church pews while eating tea leaf salad. Somewhere in between bites of samusas, we managed to figure out a solid plan for the big day.
